. it is a different tlesh hold than what the obama administration has laid out when you look carefully at what the president said at the general assembly, the most recent remarks on iran's nuclear program, he said the united states will not allow iran to have a nuclear bomb. i am paraphrasing to a certain degree. the word capability was not there. you did hear it from the israeli prime minister and today you're hearing it once again from mitt romney. mitt romney has been vague. he has gone back and forth on the issue of capability and sometimes he says it and sometimes he doesn't. today he is very cat goral in saying in a romney administration iran would not be able to have that capability of building a nuclear bomb which is significantly different than the threshold laid out by the president. >> and let's talk about syria which has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of this current sitting american president, and mr. romney, governor romney's view of syria, there was something in these prepared remarks that we excerpted that stood out to me and i want to get your take on it. he said or he w
ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you listen to what he is saying here, how much of it do you think is about a failed strategy or what is simply o
-americans. followup on last night's story about the obama administration urging defense contractors not to issue legally required layoff notices despite impending cuts due to the budget impasse. known as the sequestration. mike emanuel has the update. >> by law they're required to issue layoff notices to employees they may need to cut if the half trillion in automatic cuts known as sequestration take effect january 2. the obama administration told contractors they don't need to follow the warn act issuing layoff notices 60 days out and offered to pay for legal bills if the contractors are later sued. one legal expert says it's not following the spirit of the law. >> the administration is saying until it gives the companies specific numbers, it's not triggered. ultimately, the administration would likely prevail but it would be a close question. >> the warn act designed to protect "workers, fair families and communities requiring employers with 100 or more employees to provide 60 calendar days advance written notice of plant closing and mass layoff affecting 50 more employees at single site of em

by the obama administration's economic failures. >> major, does joe biden's statement, this video, do either play into the debate tonight? >> i don't think the video is going to play into the debate. you look at what pollsters find from surveying voters, they want to nope, especially tonight, what is your characterization of president obama, what's you've done for four years, mitt romney and what are you going to do going forward. i do not expect this to be about a video from 2007. i think if romney were to do that, it would be a strategic mistake. as for paul ryan, this has been part of a romney campaign tendency. everything from the convention, acutely so, maybe a bit before that. to take whatever sound bite of the day is and to build a narrative around that. that doesn't reenforce the larger one for the romney campaign. look, the american public is well aware of the economic situation our nation is in. it's a recovery, but the slowest and least satisfied since the great depression. something has to be said about that and directions have to be pointed at the future of the policy. that's wh
the obama administration deny the consulate in libya for more protection before last month's deadly attack? that is what a house committee alleges and they want answers. leaders of the oversight and government reform committee sent letter to hillary clinton asking why the request for security were denied by washington. they site multiple government officials as the sources. it has threats on facebook that targeted ambassadorsteins. andrea, we are three weeks to the day from the four ambassadors were killed. you have a committee now saying the answers are not good enough. they don't make sense. secretary of state hillary clinton says she will cooperate with congress. the right thing to do. there will be a hearing next wednesday. interesting today when we were talking last night and today, you saw that the press is not letting up on this. in particular, the editorial boards are starting to say wait a second, something does not seem right here. >> andrea: i don't think they could ignore it any longer. it's a shame it has take then long. but the evidence has just been overwhelming. really, cre
? why then put in this conspiracy somehow that the books were cooked? if the obama administration cooked the books, certainly the bush administration would have done so in those terrible years when the economy turned, or if someone in the administration has that kind of power. >> yeah. i actually agree 100% with mr. harwood and with tony whose tweet you quoted. you don't have to attack the integrity of the number to attack the substance of the numbers. 114,000 new jobs is nothing to celebrate. it takes 150,000 new jobs every month to absorb new work into the work force. we have 3.4 college graduates this year that need to find jobs and need 150,000 jobs to stosh them and the other people entering the work force. back in 2004 barack obama attacked president bush for a jobs report where 300,000 jobs were created, three times today's jobs. we're celebrating this today, and i think it's unwise. it shows that the expectations are much lower. we have a much lower bar to define success, and i don't think that's good for anyone. i don't think that's good for the american economy or any one of us
. the republican contender used today's speech to keep up his criticism of the obama administration. romney had a swagger. he's riding a wave of momentum after last week's debate. latest poll taken after the denver show count has the race tied at 47 among registered voters. president obama had a five point advantage in the three days leading in th debate theame poll found voters ovwhelngly sd romy won't debate, the biggest debate win ever recorded by gallup. bigger than clinton's 42 point margin over bush.4!zf[รง in los angeles last night musicians lent their support. mr. obama thanked the performers and threw in a not so subtle reference to his debate performance. >> the president: theyerfor flawlely, night aft nit. i can't always say the same. reporter: with the polls tightening the pressure is on vice president biden who squares off against ryan thursday night. karen travers, abc news, washington. >>> senator feinstein has called for a federal investigation into record gas prices we are pail. today's report shows san francisco averages $4.74 for regular oakland and san jose $4.68. those pric

. and they have both talked about tougher sanctions. obama administration is moving, coordinating with the europeans on tougher sanctions against iran. even as it leaves the door open to diplomacy. i'm not sure what mitt romney can do to except escalate the military option that would differentiate, be that different than what the obama administration has done. >> we also hear that in this speech today he'll emphasize the solution of a two-state solution and when we saw that videotape of a fund-raiser earlier this year, he dismissed that. how important is that in the big picture of foreign policy? >> well, at the moment, the peace process is dead and both men also talk about a two-state solution so again i'm not sure that it's one that will really differentiate the candidates. but it is true that mitt romney has a much stronger relationship with the prime minister of israel and there's almost open hostility between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. >> it does seem that often in campaigns that we talk about the lack of foreign policy experience for many of these candidates and
? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe

is that it took the obama administration eight days before acknowledging the attack was, in fact, a terrorist act. i want to bring in utah congressman jason chaffetz, a member of the oversight panel. chairman of the subcommittee and just got back from libya after spending the weekend there on a fact finding mission. welcome back to the show. let's just begin with where specifically in libya did you go and what did you find? >> could not get into benghazi, still too dangerous. the first thing we did is i got emotional and talking to the people there on the ground. they lost four loved ones. their ambassador, they're away from their families, they're serving their country, and after we did that, we toured the embassy itself, looked at what was going on with the security and had some good lengthy discussions about what did and did not happen leading up to the event on 9/11. >> what was your biggest takeaway from the trip, biggest takeaway, biggest frustration. >> upon reflection, there was not a single person that ever mentioned this video that the obama administration claims sparked the whole thing
concerning the obama administration's investigation of the attack on our consulate in libya. first, the white house is refusing now to comment on reports that washington denied requests for more security prior to that september 11th attack that killed four americans in libya. white house spokesman jay carney says he will not comment on a situation under review, that's a quote. second, reuters is now reporting that administration officials received about a dozen intelligence reports in the hours after the attack suggesting that this was terrorism. despite all this, days later, the white house dispatched u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice on a round of talk shows claiming these attacks were spontaneous and incited by an anti-islamic film. andy card is a former white house chief of staff under president george w. bush, and he's with me now. andy, so now the administration is going silent on it, saying we're not going to respond to this bombshell report out of congress that this is from the house oversight committee saying that they've got a bun p of whistleblowers who are now sayin
question is, is there any answer from the obama administration. >> reporter: they are tackling this head on. they say this is all about politics. ofa does not accept donations from foreign nat nations or any ineligible individual. and the campaign voluntarily goes above and beyond federal election commitments to insure the integrity of fundraising efforts. they request proof of current and a valid u.s. passport. they say it's in order to comply with all federal election laws. martha,. martha: certainly at order odds with that report. thank you very much. bill: fox news alert right now. because there is new evidence we can report that the white house knew the attack on your consulate in benghazi was the work of terrorists long before admitting it to the american people. fox news learning that a top aid to the secretary of state hillary clinton, patrick kennedy is his name briefed congressional aids the day after the attack, september 12th calling it sophisticated and complex. u.s. ambassador chris stevens among four americans killed in the attack on 9/11. a hearing on what happened in bengha
the obama administration on foreign policy yesterday. during a speech in virginia he claimed the risk of conflict in the middle east is higher now than it was when president obama took office. he urged a more aggressive u.s. role in the syrian civil war. >>> meantime, president obama campaigning on the west coast sounded an urgent note in his appeal to voter. he told supporters in san francisco they must be almost obsessive in getting out the vote. the president and mitt romney returned to the crucial state of ohio later today to campaign in that critical state. >>> first lady michelle obama is sharing a bit what goes on behind the closed dufrz the white house. in a "nightline" interview she told cynthia mcfadden she steers clear of trying to influence her husband's approximately sees instead sticking to causes like fighting childhood obesity. mrs. obama talked about how comfortable the president is around women. >> this is one of the things i love about barack, he is so used to having strong women in his life. you know, it's odd. i tell him that this is somehow, you know, god keeping
that they ought to be focusing on, the obama administration? >> well they have been and we know from scott rasmussen today that the consumer confidence over the weekend shot up and boom, the president's ratings have gone up overnight since yesterday they've gone up because of that jobs number. >> yeah, that is huge. i think the president will use that. joe biden will use it in the debate. but ultimately the president believes he will win with negative because he doesn't have is a record to run on or defend. dagen: does mitt romney need to sit back and hope the president just makes some huge error at this point? >> i think he's got to keep doing what he's been doing which is to be as john said positive on the campaign trail, dagen, but also make it clear there's an alternative approach to failed policies. dagen: how do you think wednesday shakes out? what are the odds you putting on biden making a huge gaffe because that's the reason people will watch frankly. >> better than even odds that he will say something that he shouldn't say that will be a news item. and i think seriously i think th
reduction, what he did, he connected the dots from a critique of the obama administration's record and where they have failed, to the emphasis that would be in the romney administration and he tied the two together. about how he would make lives better for the average person going forward. and then, he took another step and showed how he's a problem solver, that economic growth is actually an engine for curing some of the fiscal challenges because he-- though there's a great line that he had last night about how more people working, pay more taxes and helps reduce the deficit and really looked like a problem solver last night. not just like an ideologue the. stuart: you eat this for breakfast. what about the average person, don't know what a fiscal cliff is. and looks at two candidates going at it over jobs and taxes. what impression would they walk away from last night? >> i think that romney made a really great argument why the obama administration has no plan for next year in the romney view. and secondly, how they took their eye off the ball in the first administration and in looking at
the obama administration. so, what could a romney presidency do differently than what we have witnessed? >> well, you know, there's a good argument that much of this will be political rhetoric. it clearly no one thinks that employing convention power against iranian nuclear facilities is a way to move forward. nobody want it is israelis to attack with conventional military power at this time. and by the way, i think the iranians are going nuclear regardless of the stranglehold on them. governor romney's in a tenuous position. he won't want to provide a clear alternative. the american people won't vote for a war. >> all right. so one thing i think a lot of people will remember if they've seen the now infamous secret tape. 47% remark in florida where mitt romney did discuss the current situation in the middle east and the wording he used in reference to that saying, we just have to live with certain things that are going on there. the cycle of violence that we have been seeing. now calling for beginning anew. kind of an etch-a-sketch moment for the foreign policy initiative, the leadershi
admission that the middle-class has been hurt by the obama administration's policies. congressman paul ryan pounced. >> of course the middle-class has been buried, buried by regulations, buried by taxes, buried by borrowing, they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> biden later tried to dig himself out. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and the ryan supported. >> reporter: except for debate prep, a politics-free day for contenders. romney had lunch at chipotle. president obama paid a visit to the hoover dam. both have spent hours in debate sessions and both have challenges. aide say the president is working on keeping his answers short to not sound like professor obama. in order to win over undecided voters, romney needs to appear relatable and offer specifics on his agenda. >> he has to find something more than just discussing how bad the economy is or blaming the president for how much the economy continues to struggle. >> reporter: all the prep works come done to just 90 minutes. both candidates, one stage in a high-stakes showdown. k

top jobs in three administrations most recently in the obama administration but also for the former presidents bush, one and two, i think. >> bush one, reagan -- yes. >> all the way back. >> you come with bonified credentials in foreign policy. let's talk about what this speech really indicated on syria. it seemed to me what mitt romney presented today was not to directly arm some. he was talking about working through allies. >> if you read the speech he'll work with allies to see that arms are provided. it's a passive voice. what i heard them saying to you is we'll be more active in terms of trying to make that happen. i think the longer we wait to do it, the harder it will be. >> you would go farther than mitt romney. >> i would. >> the administration is worried about the weapons getting into the wrong hands. >> it is a legitimate concern. what you have to do is focus heavily on identifying those you are prepared to work with, create tests for them. provide the weapons that would create less concern for us like anti-tank weapons as opposed to anti-air weapons. see how they operate
reporting they had about a dozen intelligence reports, the obama administration did, suggesting it was al-qaeda-related militants who were involved in this. so we're talking by wednesday at the latest. it was sunday that susan rice went out on the talk shows, sunday. and not just one, and not an inadvertent comment saying, i think, look, it's confusing, it could have been one of a number of things. it was all the way -- you know, sunday, five days later when she came out and said, i'm telling you, it was spontaneous, it was about the video, it wasn't a preplanned thing. they were ruling out things in addition to ruling -- how does a u.n. ambassador get sent out by the administration? >> she shouldn't have been. if, in fact, and i suspect the administration knew that susan rice was going to go out there and talk to the media on that sunday, that's preplanned, and there was lots of communication with her before she went out, they should have told her what they expected her to say sw what they anticipated the questions to be and potential answers. tend not allow her or encourage her to answe
layoffs, if those pentagon cuts could take effect. the obama administration says don't send out the notices right before election day, and if you, government contractor gets sued we'll pay your legal bills. i asked an expert if that is legal. >> the administration has said that you don't have to send out these notices, because we haven't given you the specific information as to what plans, what projects will be cut. the o & b was supposed to produce that information. have you a rather bizarre game of chicken, on this occasion, however it will be thousands of workers that go over the cliff. but ultimately it comes down to the administration saying we think we going to win. >> reporter: if congress and the white house cannot workout a deal to offset those cuts after election day hundreds of thousands of workers will be the losers, jon. jenna: we have thisee hrebs coming up as you mentioned. some republicans are outraged by the move about how this is all playing out. what are they saying. >> senator john mccain says he'll do everything in his power to make sure the administration c

"special report" from washington starts at 6 eastern. now we'll send it back to new york with my colleagues with "the five". >> last night it was tk obama at the first debate in denver. how did he react today? >> so you see the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. governor romney may dance around his positions, but if you want to be president, you owe the american people the truth. >> so kimberly, a little different today than last night, huh? >> well, let me tell you, maybe he did some pushups or something because he seemed more fired up. but also at the beginning of that was bizarre, he wouldn't look at mitt romney last night. then they beginning, he wouldn't s
and this just isn't enough? >> that's, of course, why the obama administration is not spiking the ball tonight. but we are finally beginning to clean up the mess that was created under the bush administration and the blind eye that was turned to wall street, and, of course, romney is trying to change his story, too. in the debate he said, oh, i'm not against regulating wall street. really? they're for repealing the dodd/frank bill, creating the stage that would actually take us back to where we were at the hemorrhaging of jobs. we're finally beginning to turn the corner. >> when we look at what we saw on wednesday night, the president certainly under fire for this less than dynamic performance, some questioning whether he entered this debate under prepared and over confident. as we pointed out at the top of the show, you are vice chair of the obama campaign, did you president underestimate his opponent and did it take the wind out of your sails for the work you're doing for the president to get re-elected. >> i'll tell you what, it's really hard to argue against somebody who shows up with tota
